Quote: LI Phil...my suspicion is that Florida's luck has run out...beginining this year and during the remander of this decade.
Hopefully before anymore storms occur, building codes are tightened up some more in FL. Something especially needs to be done with trailer homes and manufactured homes, they are disaster waiting to happen down here. Miami-Dade County I know has better building codes, than many areas. After witnessed in the two storms so far this year, Inland Areas in Central Florida can receive 100+ MPH hurricane force winds. Its time the builders start making stronger houses, and be required to provide hurricane shutter with new homes, as they are in other coastal counties.
